monogrammed mini storage chest





zan made a personalized fira mini storage chest as a birthday present for her sister-in-law who likes craft

“i gave the unit a light sand (it comes quite rough), and stained it with a mixture of floor stain, gold paint (you can only see it from close up) and water so it’s not too dark. i painted on the embellished letter with gold acrylic paint and the leafy embellishment with oils, the checkered pattern is just a black coloured pencil. then gave the whole thing a coat of sealer and since i didn’t have any real varnish on hand, i mixed some water with PVA glue, a tiny bit of stain and tiny bit of gold paint to give the monogram an aged look. and this is what i got:”

    This makes me embarrassed to look at the rough and ugly ikea storage chest, covered in post it notes, right next to me.

    I agree, I’m impressed. Usually I feel like I could replicate the hacks I see on this site, but I’m not sure about this one….maybe if it had been done with a stencil.

    Good Job!
